Are you trying to figure out which is the best mattress in India to get THE perfect night’s sleep? If the answer is yes, you should certainly take into account the fact that there are many impulsive mistakes that you have to avoid in order to make the best decision. When it comes to the best mattress brands in India, there are certain attributes that you should certainly look for.

Before you zero in on the best mattress for your bed, its better to be aware of the top 5 mistakes to avoid while buying the mattress: 

  1. Taking someone else’s word - Do not take someone else’s word for it, ever! While buying a mattress, you should solicit opinions from friends and family members. However, remember that our bodies are all different and so are our comfort needs. Mattresses should fulfill specific comfort needs of their users and hence go by someone else’s opinions may not always be the best decision. The best mattresses for your friends or colleagues may not always be the best one for you. You should be aware of your levels of sensitivity and your pain points which have to be sorted by the mattress that you opt for.
  2. Buying firm mattresses- Another mistake that people make is buying mattresses which are very firm. Firm mattresses are often regarded as better for people but these may end up ruining one’s sleep and creating aches and pains in the body. Firm mattresses put pressure on the shoulders and hips and lead to tossing or turning at night. Firm mattresses do not shape themselves as per your body curves and proportions and hence this may put pressure on the spine, leading to sustained back pain. So unless some doctor has really prescribed a firm mattress for your pain, don’t go for a firm mattress.
  3. Running after the best deal- Many a time, people run to secure the best deals which may be a counterproductive strategy. You should always question the nature of the deal, i.e. why such a hefty discount is being given. There is the danger of getting a poor quality mattress that will damage your back and curb your sleep. Additionally, you may not get the best option even if you run after a discount or other offer.
  4. Trying Multiple Mattresses- You may want to try out multiple mattresses one after the other. However, this may be a confusing strategy. You can actually start feeling similar sensations after a point of time when you have tried multiple mattresses back-to-back. As a result, this may hinder your choice. Narrow your selection down to 2-3 mattresses and choose from the same.
  5. Looking only at the price tag- Only taking the price tag into account will not help. Always look for greater value in terms of your budget and if needed, stretch a little in order to get the best comfort and quality from your mattress. Check out the materials used for the mattress before everything else. You spend 8 hours on the mattress – its ok to pay a bit extra for certified foam and certified textiles. They are slightly more expensive but are much better for your health.
